Did you learn something new today?-Fun thread about gun and other new things
Ever learn something new and interesting? I was talking to a friend of mine who is getting a PhD in History. He told me that high quality drawing paper is often referred to as cartridge paper - before brass cartridges gunpowder and a ball were wrapped in paper of high quality for ease of loading the single shot muzzle loading guns.
Another unrelated but related thing....I was making a gun cabinet today and for some reason I was wondering why the end of a tape measure (the hook part) moves slightly. Makes sense now, That way it can accurately measure distances when the tape is hooked to the end of an object or when measuring between objects.
Anybody learn anything intersting about guns or other things today besides that a half naked FBI agent sent pics to a Florida socialite in the Petreaus scandal?
